Can you have AC without a unit?

If you do not have space or a window to fit an AC and need to cool a room ASAP, a portable AC is your answer. A portable air conditioner is the best route if you can't install a window air conditioner in your space because of design limitations or building restrictions.

Can you put an outdoor AC unit inside?

If the enclosed space has good ventilation continuously irrespective of being enclosed, you can install outdoor unit in the enclosed space. If the space is not ventilated then, there will be hot air short cycling resulting in discharge pressure increasing to the trip limit.

Do mini splits have to go on an outside wall?

Ductless mini split systems are not exclusively outdoors, nor are they exclusively indoors, either. As part of a system, the compressor of the mini split goes outside. As your mini split installation team sets up the indoor units, there's no need to attach nor vent the mini splits through any exterior walls.

Can a mini split be installed inside?

A mini split head can be installed on almost any wall within your home, but with some caveats. The refrigeration lines that connect the indoor and outdoor units are easily routed through the wall along with a power cable and the condensate line that drains off the the condensation from the head to the out of doors.

Can you put a mini split condenser inside?

Placing a condenser unit indoors in an attic or garage will reduce your system's air supply, which will limit the amount of heat that it's able to remove from your home. In addition, placing a condenser unit indoors will cause the space around it to heat up, and that heat can radiate into your home's living spaces.

Does a mini split need a condenser?

DIY mini split installation requires a condensing unit outside the home, an air handler inside the home, refrigerant lines to connect the units and electrical wire to power the units. Most ductless mini split systems are installed by a professional because the refrigerant line must be cut and then charged.

Is there a mini split that only cools?

Cooling only mini splits lower the temperature of those hard-to-cool rooms in a customizable and efficient package. If you find yourself needing to cool certain rooms, but don't want to invest in whole-house duct work, a cooling only mini split is the perfect solution.

Can you get a mini split without heat?

Even if you have a boiler or furnace, a mini split cooling + heating system can still be used as your primary source of heat with your boiler or furnace standing by as a back-up. If you don't need heat at all, then a cooling only unit will be perfect for your needs.

Are mini splits AC or DC?

The cooling in a ductless mini-split can be over 30 SEER! The equipment takes high-voltage electricity coming in and converts it into DC voltage.

Do all mini splits heat?

The multiple indoor units can be independently controlled, but they all use the same outdoor heat pump unit to either absorb or dispense heat.

Can you run refrigerant lines in a wall?

Yes, it can be, but it's going to be a little more difficult that a normal DIY installation. If I'm understanding what you're saying, the line set is going to have to go straight down through the interior wall. So, that means you're going to have to bend that line set a full 90 degrees, which could cause problems.
